WELCOME!I’m Lauren — a gentle wanderlust who lives in a little valley nestled between Sacramento and San Francisco. I embrace life’s littlest and most poignant moments, and share them here.
FOLLOW @theurbanhippie ON INSTAGRAM!Sometimes all you need is a sunrise paddle and a chat sesh before work. Thanks for being my co-early-morning-river-lovah @janelle_meyers! #FirstWePaddleThenWeDoThings #paddleboard #sunrisepaddle #thankful #OneWorkoutDownHappy, happy birthday to my favorite Henoveva. #lalaladiesnight #WeHeartGenevieveClusters. #grapes #grapevines #winery #lodicaBeautiful paddle on Fourth of July morning. #Swipe #CoffeeNPaddles #StandUpPaddle #paddle #lodicaLast night I dreamt about happy plant babies and blossoming cuttings. That’s probably what you get when you fall asleep to videos about propagating fiddle leaf fig leaves. My own plant babies need some love this holiday week, but I’m pretty happy that my fiddle leaf is thriving after I almost tossed it when I thought it was a goner two years ago with only one lone leaf. That might be my best IKEA purchase yet. I brought a second fiddle leaf home last week and hope it likes this bright room just as much. #growlittleplantbaby #fiddleleaf #plantroom #showmeyourbohoPaddling into sunsets and beneath full moons. #fullmoonpaddle #lodica #standuppaddle #afterworkvibesReason #56,841 summer is awesome: Concerts happen in orchards under towering shade trees. #NotToMentionAmazingFriends #lodicaSwipe!

Congrats to your fam, our lovely Monique!
